Tequila Lime Shrimp

I improvised these up as a quick protein to go with pinto beans and this slaw, for sort of a low carb  take on Mexican.

1 pound shrimp, defrosted and shelled

splash tequila

juice of half a lime

about 1 tbsp taco seasoning (I used Penzey’s bold). Cumin would also be fine

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp olive oil

salt and pepper

Heat oil in pan. Add shrimp – season with taco seasoning, garlic and salt. Cook about a minute. Add lime and tequila (remove pan from heat if you’re worried it might flare up; I didn’t have an issue). Cook until shrimp are opaque.
